Hedge of Thorn Prayers
Prayer against adultery - pray a hedge about your spouse:
Hear my prayer, O Lord, give ear to my cry, do not be silent at my tears. Put my tears in a bottle, are they not in Thy book? Since I am afflicted and needy, let the Lord be mindful of me. Thou art my help and deliverer. Do not delay, O my God." (From Psalms 56 and 40)
My close friend, _____, in whom I trusted, who ate my bread, has lifted up his heel against me. For it is not an enemy who reproaches me, then I could bear it, nor is it one who hates me who has exalted himself against me, then I could hide myself from him. But it is _______, a man my equal, my companion and my familiar friend, we who had sweet fellowship together." (Psalms 41 & 55)
Let the evil of the wicked come to an end, but establish the righteous. In the net which they hid, their own foot has been caught. Hold them guilty, O God, by their own devices, let them fall! In the multitude of their transgression thrust them out for they are rebellious against Thee. Let them be appalled because of their shame. All my enemies shall be ashamed and greatly dismayed. They shall turn back, they shall suddenly be ashamed. Let me not be put to shame, O Lord, for I call upon Thee. Let the wicked be put to shame, let them be silent. In Thee, O Lord, I have taken refuge. In Thy righteousness deliver me. (Psalms 7, 9 & 31)
Though they intend evil against Thee, and devise a plot, they will not succeed. When my enemies turn back they stumble and perish before Thee. Thou hast blotted out their name forever and ever. The very memory of them has perished. Yet a little while and the wicked man will be no more. And you will look carefully for his place and he will not be there. But the humble will inherit the land and will delight themselves in abundant properity. (From Psalm 21)
"Thou dost surround the righteous with a shield. In peace I will both lie down and sleep. For Thou alone dost make me dwell in safety. Offer to God a sacrifice of thanksgiving, and call upon Me in the day of trouble. I shall rescue you, and you will honor Me. (From Psalm 4)
"Be strong, and let your heart take courage, all you who hope in the Lord. Be their shepard also and carry them forever. I would have despaired if I had not believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord, in the land of the living. Wait for the Lord; be strong and let your heart take courage. Yes, wait for the Lord. (From Psalm 27)
"For your huband is your Maker, Whose name is the Lord of Hosts; for the Lord has called you, like a wife forsaken and grieved in spirit, even a wife of ones youth when she is rejected, says Your God" (Isaiah 54:5-6)
"I ask You, Father, to rebuke and bind satan in the Name and through the Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. I ask you to build a Hedge of Thorns around ______ so that anyone who is interested in him will lose interest immediately and leave. I base my prayer on the command of Your Word which says, "What therefore God has joined together, let no man separate" and "Marriage should be honored by all and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral." and, "The husband should fufill his marital duty to his wife, and likewise the wife to her husband. The wifes body does not belong to her alone but also to her husband. In the same way, the husbands body does not belong to him alone but also to his wife.",
as well as, "Dont you know that you yourselves ae Gods temple and that Gods spirit lives in you? If anyone destroys (defiles) Gods temple, God will destroy him, for Gods temple is sacred, and you are that temple", "The body is not meant for sexual immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body. By His power God raised the Lord from the dead, and he will raise us also. Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ himself? Shall I then take the members of Christ and and unite them with a prostitute? Never! Flee from sexual immorality. All others sins a man commits are outside his body, but he who sins sexually sins against his own body. Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, Who is in you, Whom you have received from God? You are not your own, you were bought at a price.
Therefore honor God with your body." Therefore I will block ______ path with thorn bushes, I will wall ________ in so ________ cant find his way. ______ shall chase after his lovers but not catch them. _____ will look for them but not find them, then ____ will say, I will go back to my wife, ____, for I was better off then than now.

Havent you read He replied that at the beginning the creator made them male and female and said "For this reason a man, ______, will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, _____ and the shall become one flesh".
